in a state, a state that has the most restrictive laws in the country? during the election, president obama promised change we can believe in and he's delivering. republicans promise change, too. but nobody believes in it, least of all the republicans. joining me now are krystal ball and joan walsh. thanks for being here tonight. >> thanks for having us, reverend. >> do the republicans not notice their rhetoric, that it doesn't mesh with their reality? >> i don't know, to be honest with you. because on the one hand, they see the demographic trends. the rnc conducted an autopsy of their dead party. we know that there's a problem. >> we call it a flawtopsy. >> on the other hand, it would really upset their base on gay marriage, even as 58% of americans accept gay marriage, the base of the republican party is in this very different place. so they don't know how to make that movement without upsetting their base, which is why you saw after that autopsy, which did make some comments about young people needing to see that the republican party was more open on issues of equality for the lgbt commu
be much ado about nothing if not for the fact that trivial attacks on president obama are obscuring serious problems in this country. does the president live well in the white house? yes, he does. is there money wasted there? you bet there is. every other president in history has lived in comfort. it looks like president bush the younger had a bigger white house budget than barack obama does. this is a trivial pursuit. and michele bachmann made a mistake pursuing it. with the nation now owing close to $17 trillion, i wish the president were more like pope francis, who has a cardinal in argentina rejected of all the lavish perks. mr. obama is entitled to protection, convenience and comfort as he he runs the nation. congresswoman bachmann and all the opponents of president obama should zero in on what's really important, the president's failure to deal with out-of-control spending and his core belief that america is not a fair country. that's what's important. not who is walking the presidential dog. by the way, that's the gardner who walks the dog. and he has always walked the dogs.
-bros. [laughter] he doesn't get you. [cheers and applause] this man doesn't get it. israel is a divided country that feels beseiged by terrorists, and whose politics are increasingly dictated by a small, hard-right minority. obama can't relate to that! [laughter] and if you need more proof that the president is no friend of israel, just do the math: back in 2007, president bush supported israel with $2.3 billion in foreign military aid. this year, president obama wants to bring that down to just $3.1 billion. [laughter] i know, it looks like it's going up, but remember, in hebrew you read charts from right to left. [cheers and applause] all right? [cheers and applause] and our worst fears about obama were confirmed when he appointed as secretary of defense former senator and man who just learned his dog died-- chuck hagel. [laughter] hagel has a history of troubling statements. he once said the jewy lobby intimidate dates a lot people and i'm not an israeli senator i'm a united states senator. clearly this man doesn't understand that when it comes to israel, there are certain things you can't s
, has to make sure that it doesn't underestimate the resolve the two countries. the bigger problem for obama and netanyahu, of course, is dealing with the palestinians with israel locked into the expansion of settlements at the very time that the palestinians are saying there is nothing to talk about and israel continues to posture. >> all right, bob franken, thank you for your time. we appreciate it. >>> thank you. >> turning to sports, an amazing nba come back. a homecoming in cleveland for lebron james who had a triple-double as miami overcame a 27 point deficit and the heat squeaked by the cavs 98-95 and in the process upped their 24th straight win. >>> in the first round of the ncaa tournament, two number 16 seeds and james madison university beat liu brooklyn 68-55 to advance to the second round which starts tomorrow with 16 games. they'll play top seed indiana friday. >>> and then two number 13 seeds, will he sal debeated boise state. they advance to face kansas state. >>> president obama filled out his ncaa brackets. he predicted number one seed louisville will make it to t

was asked about yesterday's possible chemical weapons attack in northern syria. mr. obama said last year that if the regime used such weapons, it would cross a red line of its own. >> i've instructed my teams to work closely with all other countries in the region and international organizations and institutions to find out precisely whether or not this red line was crossed. i will note, without at this point having all the facts before me, that we know the syrian government has the capacity to carry out chemical weapon attacks. we know that there are those in the syrian government who have expressed a willingness to use chemical weapons if necessary to protect themselves. i am deeply skeptical of any claim that in fact it was the opposition that used chemical weapons. the broader point is, is that once we establish the facts, i have made clear that the use of chemical weapons is a game changer. >> warner: both leaders spoke extensively about iran and about the different timetables the countries are on for possible military action to prevent an iranian nuclear weapon. mr. obama said he th

[laughter] >> the bush library opens next week, and i believe as people look at his record compared to president obama's record, it will stack up very well, and history will be kind to him. in terms of governor romney, there are things the campaign did wrong. there is a lot of reflection on that. i think governor romney would have made a good president, and i would say also in terms of lessons learned, one of the lessons i learned is instead
of it is really college students, had that president obama lockley and their achievements, condemning their enemies, and affirming the unbreakable bond between the countries, including to prevent iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. that together we share a commitment for security for our citizens and the stability of the middle east and north africa. together, we share a focus on advancing economic growth around the globe and strengthening the middle class within our own countries. together, we share a stake in the success of democracy. >> but the meat of the speech, the real message came towards the end. the u.s. president made it abundantly clear he was not going to walk away from a two- state solution, israel and palestine existing side by side. >> is really must recognize that continued settlement activity is counter active. a counter -- is counterproductive and independent palestine is of importance with real borders. >> well-received by the enthusiastic young audience, it will not go well with the center-right government. againstler, so opening the creation of a palestinian sta

[ applause ] >> in an early news conference with palestinian print abbas, he criticized israel over treatment of palestinians in the west bank. >> i have returned to the west bank because the united states is dopily -- deeply committed to a sovereign state of palestine. the palestinian people deserve an end to occupation and the daily indignities that come with it. >> the president says peace is possible. both presidents say that. >> we are ready to implement all our commitments and obligations. >> there was no peace this morning as militants fired into southern israel and palestinian protesters took to the
ahead for both sides. tonight, there is no doubt that president obama is asking a lot of the israeli people. many of them have bled for their country's right to exist. some have survived genocide. and virtually all who live within israel's borders live under constant threat. not only from militants but countries including vaughn which today threatened to wipe two cities off the map if israel attacks its nuclear program. when it comes to the palestinians, president obama made the case. that true security can come only through peace. >> the only way to true there protect the israeli people over the long term is through the absence of war. because no wall is high enough and no iron dome is strong enough or perfect enough to stop every enemy that is intent on doing so from inflicting harm. >> shepard: the president made a promise that as long as the united states exist the israeli people will never be alone. and with that the stakes are raised and the bar is higher. ed henry is traveling with the president and live early this friday morning in jerusalem. ed, the president also went on to

both in the united states and israel. the question of how obama felt or feels about israel has been a live political question in both countries, and here to have this kind of engagement with young israeli students is a way of trying to reach out to say, look i'm not an unfriendly president, i really mean when i say -- it's in the a cliche that when i talk about having your back, it's much more heartfelt. so the mood music is good. the question about policy is a different story. jenna: it's interesting to note when the president began his first term he made the speech in cairo to the muslim world. now he's beginning his second term with this speech to israelis specifically. what do you make of that juxtaposition? does it signal anything truly different between the first and second term? >> let me be an optimist for a second. jenna: that is a new thing for you i know. >> hard for me to do. part of the problem with obama's first term is he spent a lot of time coddling our enemies and united states andtting distance our friends. maybe he understands really what you have to do is run an

question. let's look ahead to tomorrow when the president will be traveling to jordan. president obama has been very care wfl the u.s. involvement in syria but jordan is of course the country dealing with the syrian refugee crisis. more than 450,000 syrians have fled to jordan so far. what do you expect to come out of tomorrow's meeting with king abdullah? >> well, king abdullah is a key player in the middle east. jordan has always been helpful to middle east peace process. i think again, a reinforcement of an already strong relationship, countries like jordan help with the syrian issue on refugees. you have to keep jordan involved because they can be very constructive. again, their relationship is good. but being in the region, not going to jordan, especially with the syrian situation exploding, is not a good sign. so the president has covered his bases. he's been to the palestinian authority. a very strong trip and israel's symbolism, personal connection with bibi, laying out new policy. and then with the king of jordan, going more into regional issues like syria and iran makes a lot of

much damage, but they served as a reminder that the president is visiting a country very much under fire. ♪ president obama arrived this morning in the west bank. his message here, the importance of peace between the israelis and the palestinians. but fears of war have dominated the trip specifically fears that iran is dangerously close to getting a nuclear weapon. >> the greatest danger is a nuclear iran. >> in order to stop iran's nuclear programs peacefully diplomacy and sanctions must be augmented by a clear and credible threat of action. >> reporter: when it comes to iran, the president says the u.s. stands firm with israel. >> we agree on our goal. we do not have a policy of containment when it comes to a nuclear iran. our policy is prevent iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon. >> reporter: even if it takes a military strike against iran. >> i will repeat all options are on the table. we will do what is necessary to prevent iran from getting the world's worst weapons. >> reporter: president obama has had a frosty relationship with prime minister netanyahu, but on this trip b
'll tell you what i saw was a great relationship between our two countries, the bonds between america and israel go way beyond president obama and prime minister netanyahu. started long before and will continue long after. but the president has been very warm towards the israeli people and we certainly appreciate it. >> now the president of the united states and the prime minister did not really come off fully on the same page on iran. just one way of putting this when the prime minister approached the podium, he talked about iran first. president obama mentioned it last. in fact, prefacing it with the word finally. and here's what they said. >> we prefer to resolve this diplomatically. and there's still time to do so. >> diplomacy and sanctions so far have not stopped iran's nuclear program. >> do you think the u.s. really has, i'll quote president obama, all options on the table when it comes to iran when you hear words like you heard today? >> well, erin, i think we have to look at the facts. and the facts are that words in washington or in jerusalem don't stop centrifuges and even

, politically, he understands why they feel special about their country. to bring all that together, and as andrea said, this speech was designed to do all that. barack obama has shown in his career that these big set-piece speeches are his probably best tool as a president and as a political leader. if he can launch it, this will be the way to launch it. >> what is interesting, also, another aspect he brought was really an emotional connection. i was here with you. he's talking as a parent and reached out to israeli parents and said, were you to speak to some of these young palestinians i spoke with this morning, you would wish them well, you would wish them prosperity and peace. how much, jamie, do you think israeli and palestinian politicians can step outside of their role as politicians and look just as parents, as people? can that make a difference? do you think if there's a ground swell that way? >> well, i think that's what the president was hoping to spark by reflecting his own feelings when he met these palestinian children and thought about his daughters and realized the s
hour or so in ramallah. the way this event will work is both leaders, president obama and president milwaukahmoud abbl deliver short remarks and there will be questions. not a lot of questions really, just one question to each leader from each country's press corps. >> the shot you see on the right side of your screen is where we expect to see leaders coming out any moment now for this news conference. the president arrived first in tel aviv to a lot of waiting dignitaries and media who have been waiting for this trip since becoming president. he is coming there in a listening mode, now meeting with mahmoud abbas, in a listening mode. john king just reported to us, look, it's not a stalled peace process between the palestinians and the israelis. it is a dead peace process, he said. >> john king, yesterday we saw so many smiles, so much hand holding practically between president obama and benjamin netanyahu. as we are waiting this press conference between president obama and president mahmoud abbas, what are you looking for in terms of how they relate to each other? >> reporter: a co
in many areas of the country. it helped people move into an advanced lifestyle and away from dependency. and we've drifted gradually through the bush years and into the obama years, in which those qualities of that program have been undermined. and president obama is overtly advocating relaxing some of the rules that mandate work requirements for some of the people that are involved heemplet he ihere.he's retreati. that's the wrong way. we have a group of senators, fine people, meeting in secret. maybe they're down the hall now. i don't know where they are. they're plotting right now to pass us an immigration plan. and we just can't wait to see what it is so we can just vote for whatever they decide we ought to have. and you know what they tell us? we can't get workers. we go go got to have foreign wo. we've never had more people on welfare. never had more people on food stamps. in 2001 we spent $20 billion on food stamps. last year we spent $80 billion on food stamps. it's gone up fourfold. but we're told there are not enough americans to do work. somehow this welfare office needs to b

that attacks or the united states, there will be an iranian retaliation against israel. when obama talks about all military options on the ground, of course he doesn't want to repeat an iraq scenario of taking over the country, although one thing may lead to another. i think the assumption is if the united states reaches a position, in which all diplomacy has been exhausted and there is no other choice but to launch some kind of a strike against iran, then united states will be able to take care of whatever launchers iran has that could threaten israel and provide some kind of assistance and missile defense to protect the israelis. it won't be 100% in fool proof protection but it can go a long way in assuring israelis. >> all right. thank you so much for joining us. >> thank you. >>> up next, biden and bloomberg together and taking on gun violence today. what meaningful reform are we actually going to get? the assault weapons ban is out. the fate of background checks is uncertain. the bill headed to the senate floor. a far cry of ambitions. we're talking guns. >> i get it. >> for thursday, mar

candidates, president obama, governor romney, agreed on one thing and that was that the people of this country faced a fundamental choice in the direction we were going to take. and the american people voted and they resoundedly rejected the approach that is now taken once again for the third year in a row in this republican budget. this budget, as we've heard over the last couple days, fails on a number of counts. number one, it adopts the european style austerity approach that we've seen slow down economies in many parts of europe. we should instead be focusing on job growth and putting people back to work rather than a budget like this budget which will result in 750,000 fewer americans working by the end of this year. that's according to the independent nonpartisan congressional budget office. and it will result in more than two million fewer people working next year. it also fails the test of taking a balanced approach. because it is founded on the failed idea that combiffing another round of tax cuts to people at the very high end of the income scale will somehow trickle
million-vote margin between mitt romney and president obama. there's also some reference to the policy there. but it's unclear exactly what that would mean or where it would go. look, this just falls within the narrative of everything we're seeing in this country. as more and more republicans, more and more democrats and the american public evolves and has evolved quite quickly on this issue. and it's time quite frankly for our elected leaders in washington to catch up with the rest of the country. >> rock on, human rights campaign president, chad griffin, thanks for coming on the show. >> pleasure to be here, thank you, alex. >>> hash tag now is the time, it could be mantra for middle east peace. we will ask the new republican's ben birnbaum about the fierce urgency of a two-state solution when he joins us live from tel aviv, just ahead. hey, our salads.

the world. president obama has made a unique and significant contribution to the security of the state of israel, both through further strengthening the strategic cooperation between the countries and the joint development of technology to defend civilian populations against missiles and terrorism. the iran drone system is a prominent example of his cooperation, saving lives of many and ensuring the safety of citizens all over israel. for these reasons, shimon peres, president of the state of israel, will confirm barack obama, president of the united states of america, the highest civilian award of the state of israel, the presidential medal of distinction.
